  • Hello,

    The minumum resolutions for Metro-style apps to run is 1024x768, you're native resolution is to low on the vertical (x720).

  • Hey ReaperOfSouls,

     

    You could continue to use the 1024x768 resolution instead of 1280x720 (if 1024x768 is an option provided by your video card and monitor). Another workaround would be to connect your computer to a second monitor that is capable of displaying a resolution of 1024x768 or higher natively. Then the Metro style applications would be able to open in the screen with its resolution set to 1024x768 or higher.
